New Badu

I've been spending some time with Erykah Badu's New Amerykah Part 2: Return of the Ankh. I'm enjoying this one more than it's predecessor which took some time to grow on me. It's clear that Badu took her time to craft a very well produced album.

I'm especially fond of "Fall In Love (Your Funeral)" where she channels B.I.G's "Warning" for the hook. Kareem Riggins on the track.

And the album artwork, like Part 1, is superb.

Bonus Badu:

By now you've probably heard the hoopla regarding her video for "Window Seat". I don't have much of an opinion on it. I just didn't realize that her ass was so massive.
